A friend of mine from Germany wants to buy a modem in the US and use it in a German built PC. Will this work?
Will the German  phone cable fit the jacks? If not, is there an adapter?  Anything else to be concerend about?

No it will not fit the jack. I did the same in Austria but my local Post-Store had a cable.

So, are you saying it will work as long as he get's the proper cable?. Is this easy to find and how expensive is it?

I don't now how easy it is to find in your country. In Austria you can go to a post-shop which is in almost every city and buy one. I costs about 10 US$.

someone else raised this concern
-the power supply might not be interchangeable between 110/220V
Wouldn't the computer automatically moderate the power supply?
